also, check out this page:

http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialMozillaConfiguration.html

this gives instructions on how to install the j2re packages from Sun,
and also, how to enable java plugin within mozilla/firefox ... for
*ages* i thought i wasn't able to use my internet banking on
linux/firefox, but then i found that page, which shows how to enable
java plugin (plus all other plugins like realplayer, flash etc) and
register protocols ... very informative.
